    2…………> Crooked Border Agent: Blood Money


    A former US Border Patrol Agent Robert Hall, 45, of La Feria, Texas, was sentenced to 114 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release for accepting bribes in return for helping to smuggle illegal drugs into the United States.

      In total, Hall accepted over $50,000 in cash from the DTO in exchange for using his position as a BPA to enable the DTO’s drug shipments to cross the border into Texas without law enforcement detection.

      In exchange for cash payments, he provided an individual in the DTO with CBP sensor locations, the locations of unpatrolled roads at or near the US-Mexico border, the number of BPAs working in a certain area, keys to unlock CBP locks located on gates to ranch fences along the border and CBP radios

    According to the plea documents, between 2004 and 2014, Hall, working with others including Daniel Hernandez, 46, of Roseville, California, facilitated the trafficking of illegal drugs, including marijuana, into the United States from Mexico on behalf of a drug trafficking organization

    Hall, a former BPA, was sentenced by US District Judge Ewing Werlein Jr of the Southern District of Texas, who also ordered Hall to pay a fine in the amount of $20,000, after pleading guilty to one count of bribery on Sept 14, 2018, which was unsealed today.



    3…………> Filipino Jewelry Scam: Native Customers


    Philippines-based conspirators and crooks operating a fraudulent scheme to import Native American-style jewelry and sell it to retail stores and individuals across the southwest United States as authentic jewelry made by Native Americans, where slammed by a federal grand jury in Phoenix, Arizona 38-count indictment for perpetrating an international fraud and money laundering scheme in violation of federal laws, including the Indian Arts and Crafts Act (IACA).

      The conspirators allegedly took several measures to ensure that the jewelry resembled authentic Native American-made jewelry, including copying jewelry designs from genuine Native American artists, using traditional Native American motifs and symbols in the jewelry, and stamping the jewelry with the initials of alleged Native American artists.

    The defendants and their co-conspirators used various jewelry businesses, including Last Chance Jewelers and LMN Jewelers—to design and manufacture jewelry in the Native-American style at factories in the Philippines where Filipino jewelry-makers made all of the jewelry.

      From there, it was allegedly advertised and sold to the general public as authentic jewelry made by Native Americans, at jewelry and crafts stores that purported to specialize in Native American pieces.

    President Trump signed two girls’ Bibles while at a makeshift relief center in Beauregard, where ten members of one family died in the tornado last weekend in the deadliest strike in the US since 24 people died in Moore, Oklahoma in 2013.

    President Trump and first lady Melania Trump visited the rural town which bore the brunt of the twister, standing on a hill overlooking a debris field and surveyed mangled trees and other wreckage before pausing in front of each of the white wooden crosses erected near a church that is serving as a makeshift disaster relief centre for survivors.

    Mr. Trump used a felt pen to scratch out his signature on the cover of the girl’s Bible, which was decorated with pink camouflage, and volunteer said the President and first lady signed a small Bible owned by her 10-year-old daughter, Meredith Pike.
